Gumboots


I walked the distance under the grey sky
Let the rain quieten my mind
The gumboots you gifted me
were meant to keep me dry
They were love to me

I knocked on your door
waited patiently
You opened eventually
and showed me contempt

Still
I was so glad I came
I couldn’t run away from missing you
But I finally turned away from hatred

Strangely
my steps were lightened
in my water filled gumboots

Goodbyes

farewell wanna be yet never be for fear of losing the now should have never been

farewell promised to be yet could not be for losing faith of forever be

farewell the me pretended to be yet could never be for losing myself was what it would ever be

farewell all my past should have been could have been yet would never be

close the doors and let the ghosts rest
follow the guiding light to my destined to be
